Candace, better known as Candy or Oma was a military child who traveled all over the globe living in many different places. The place she enjoyed living the most as a child was Guam. Throughout her life she worked many jobs to include driving a bus for over 20 years during which she loved to decorate her bus for all of the holidays. As well as give out handmade trinkets to each and every student she had on her bus. She graduated with her teaching degree at the age of 57 and went on to substitute teach for many years. She also enjoyed volunteering as an usher at the Majestic Theater. She was also a very talented baker, for a time she made beautiful and elaborate wedding cakes. Even once she stopped doing this as a business she was kind enough to make wedding cakes for family members. She also made many, many, birthday cakes for family and friends throughout the years. The thing she was best at though, was being a mom and Oma. Despite keeping busy with multiple jobs at one time, she always made time for her children and grandchildren. She was the soul of the family, who led by example and taught her family how to love, respect, and treat people correctly. She also taught the family to give without expecting to receive and to be gracious but strong. She was an incredible and irreplaceable woman.
The family will be hosting a Celebration of Life on Saturday, December 11, 2021 starting at 2 p.m. and lasting throughout the evening at the Schertz VFW hall.
